There Are No Words Witty Enough to Headline This

After that wild and crazy weekend, I needed a few days to let the adrenaline rush go and calm myself.  But I would be sorely remiss if I never said a word about "The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot" written and directed by My Doctor, Peter Davison (for all his self-deprecation in this, he really is the best ever Doctor and no one can convince me otherwise).  Just... watch -

(And because there's something in the HTML code that hates me, the damn thing won't embed. Seesh - would it kill the BBC to put this on YouTube or something? Oh well - here's a direct link to the page)

You know, I'd been run ragged by Saturday night. Running the emotional gamut - even before "The Day of the Doctor" aired, I was bouncing around the house in preparation of watching the episode.  Then actually watching the episode and writing up my thoughts about it and then squeeing over it for four hours with my friends Rachel and Brittany over on Google Hangouts - I was drained (and that's not even counting the emotionally harrowing experience of An Adventure in Space and Time). But I appreciated having this little palate cleanser of humor that was still Doctor Who-related.  I can't think of a more perfect little treat to cap off the most remarkable day in Doctor Who history and fandom.

Now, I'm off today on adventures in family and turkey (and I'm probably in for some teasing this week from the relations - at least, the ones who follow me on Facebook and have likely seen all my fangirl flailing there over the past week.  Eh... I deal with it).  So, everyone celebrating have a happy Thanksgiving break and I hope you're all recovering nicely.  I do still have plans for next year. There will finally be a break in my Doctor Who flailing and I'll be able to get some new things in my notebook - some children's and YA book reviews as well as movie and TV discussion as it comes along.  But all the Doctor Who 50th stuff has been so much fun and I'll find reasons to do more over time, I'm sure.  Until then - yeah... that's about it.


  1. I've been enjoying reading your WHO posts over the last day or so. Glad that you enjoyed all of the anniversary progs (nice to see that they all lived up to my expectations of them). It's now pretty much a clear run until Christmas, and Matt Smith's last stand. Look forward to seeing what you think of that.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments! I'm glad you enjoyed my posts - I certainly enjoyed writing them. Christmas is going to be wild, that's for sure!
